Qubo (stylized as qubo) was an American multiplatform children's entertainment service. It is operated by Ion Media Networks. It includes a 24-hour digital television channel/subchannel, a video on demand service, and a weekly programming block on parent network Ion Television under the name "Qubo Kids Corner". Following Ion Media's acquisition by the E. W. Scripps Company, Qubo Channel ceased all operations on February 28, 2021.
Qubo was first developed in September 2006. It was developed by Ion Media Networks, Corus Entertainment, Scholastic Corporation, Classic Media, and NBCUniversal. It was to be a "building block for kids" (as stated by president Rick Rodriquez). The brand would have programming blocks on NBC, Telemundo, and Ion Television, a video on demand service, a website, and a 24-hour standalone channel carried as a digital subchannel on Ion's local affiliates.
